The November 2009 Daring Bakers Challenge was chosen and hosted by Lisa Michele of Parsley, Sage, Desserts and Line Drives. She chose the Italian Pastry, Cannolo (Cannoli is plural), using the cookbooks Lidia’s Italian-American Kitchen by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich and The Sopranos Family Cookbook by Allen Rucker; recipes by Michelle Scicolone, as ingredient/direction guides. She added her own modifications/changes, so the recipe is not 100% verbatim from either book.
I almost thought there was no Daring Bakers Challenge this month. When I checked the site to see what the November challenge was, it said "Sorry all, we're not baking this month". But that is because the challenge is cannoli. Cannoli is an Italian dessert that is made of fried dough, formed into tubes, and filled with sweetened ricotta cheese. So no, we are not baking, but we're still making a great dessert.
